I saw him there last year. On stage at the Brighton Center.





Terrible venue, that, much prefer the Dome.

Jarvis Cocker has announced a series of dates in June to coincide with his, as yet, untitled second solo album, which is due for release through Rough Trade in the late spring.


The full list of dates are as follows:

JUNE
10th Blackpool Empress Ballroom
12th Glasgow ABC
16th Brighton Dome
17th London Troxy

Tickets for the shows go on sale on Tuesday 3rd March. They will be priced at £17.50 in Glasgow & Blackpool, £18 in Brighton and £20 in London. They are available via www. gigsandtours. com for the shows in England and www. gigsinscotland. com for the Glasgow show.


Jarvis toured at the end of last year; the series of dates also incorporated a ‘lecture’ and featured a number of new tracks, which are due to appear on the forthcoming album.


He released his debut solo-album, Jarvis, in 2006 and in 2007 curated the Meltdown festival at London’s Southbank Centre.


European dates to be announced soon!


London or Brighton or London or Brighton ... or wait for the European dates? *hmpf*

I feel like I'm going to get shouted at here, but which Pulp albums are best ?? I am 'geting into' Pulp, but my parents only have Hits and We Love Life. Where do I go from there ??

We Love Life is an odd album, and certainly not one to get into Pulp with. I've not got any of the first three. Different Class and This is Hardcore are both excellent though. His 'n' Hers doesn't do so much for me.

...Whereas His 'n' Hers does a lot for me! I actually prefer it over Different Class. I do agree with what The hero's only chance said about We Love Life, though. I listened to it for the first time and then didn't dig it out again for months. Now it stands alongside all the rest of 'em, for me.

I would single out Separations too, which is just a sublime disco album with a couple of mirror-ball ballads chucked in for good effect, I've got a massive soft spot for it. It's an album chock full of melodrama, yet with a great sense of humour to it, and lots of yummy, squelchy, vintage synths.

Even though I love Freaks, I would approach with more caution than the others. It's molasses dark but, 'They Suffocate At Night' is just incredible.

Let us know what you choose!

See, it's not a bad album, it's just that Scott's production and the slightly depressive tone Jarvis takes lets it down. It has The Trees and Bad Cover Version on it though, so it can't be all bad.

I'm with Rusty there too.

I think We Love Life gets a tough deal. For me it's a better "album" than This Is Hardcore, which frankly dies after about six tracks and suffers from a massive problem with over-production down to its year long production time.

We Love Life however feels like more of a Pulp album to me and its raggedness in parts makes it all the more charming. Lyrically I find it's easier to connect with than Hardcore too.

Also, I still love Different Class's overt poppiness, only a little less than His n Hers as it reminds me of a very specific time in my life.

Based on price on Amazon, and my sister's expert judgement on album titles and covers (I'm an indecisive person, me), I have bought the two-disk version of His 'n' Hers. Thanks for the advice, and I will work through the other albums you have suggested.

All the tourdates are on his myspace now and all I can say is BOO! The UK gets four dates and every other country ONE EACH! Sad

Aaand ticketmaster only seem to send tickets to countries outside the UK / Ireland by FEDEX now! For 13.50 pounds!!! Eh???

Okay, London it is. I'm looking forward to several "Due to circumstances beyond our control bladebladebla" mails from gigsandtours.

I'd like to see Jarvis in concert... He's playing in Paris on the 4th of June, there are still tickets avalaible...
But I can't let my wife alone home with our daughter and the newborn. No I won't.

Question to Jarvis' fans : does he also play songs from the Pulp era during his concerts, or does he stick to his solo work?

Strictly solo work. Sad

He did play "Something changed" at some Christmas thing last year but never plays any Pulp songs at the proper gigs.

I am definitely enjoying it very much, and will probably be buying Different Class soon. With the bonus disk, of course. (actually, I haven't listened to the bonus disk that came with His 'n' Hers yet, because I'm too busy listening to the album. Ah well)

*points to Live On; demands bopping*

Weighing in on the mini debate, I have to admit to We Love Life being my absolute favourite Pulp album. Sure, Different Class defined all of 1995 and 1996 and This is Hardcore works very well as an album but since I heard the opening bars of Weeds on a coach somewhere in France as the sun was rising, I was smitten.

Roadkill is arse, mind.

okay then, what is the name (and therefore the instrument) of the Pulp member with the scarey eyes, the one in the yellow suit on the cover of His 'n' Hers ??? I can't work it out and Google is being useless.

Russell Senior. He plays violin and guitar.

I'm so jealous of you PolkaDot. I wish I could listen to His 'n' Hers for the very first time again. Hope you're still enjoying it.
